Does anyone have any inside knowledge on what may happen to Australian Airlines when Qantas starts Jetstar International?

I really hope they don’t do away with them I think its a great product although they have had a hard time with everything that has happened in Asia & Bali.

I really think they could bounce back Ansett International did really well with many of the routes and I guess that’s is what Qantas wanted to capitalize on when starting Australian Airlines.

One route I think they could try is Adelaide - Bali now that Air Paradise is gone it is left wide open.

Why the double post Ngariman?

I don't have any inside knowledge, but Geoff Dixon said the in Business Sunday interview a few weeks ago that Australian Airlines was here to stay (but not expand) as it serves a valuable purpose.

See this thread for more details.

G'Day Ngariman,

Nobody really knows what is going on with Australian. Apparently staff are disappointed with being promised things by A.S + team and them not being delivered. Other than that the staff are happy and seem to enjoy their jobs.

I can see AO being a Japan focused carrier. Jetstar will probably pick up the rest of the slack.

I do not think there is much of a market for AO on ADL-DPS as Garuda pretty much have the route to themselves. If the QF group were interested in ADL-DPS I wouldn't rule out seeing an extension to ADL of the DRW-DPS service i.e ADL-DRW-DPS-DRW-ADL.

Perhaps after the MAY 15 [tentative] JQ International launch, some more information on AO's future and direction will be released.

I'm still waiting to see whether to introduction of Economy Plus on Australian was a diversion or infact real. There are many questions to be answered.

Regards
